Summary: Having a truly global audience requires preparing to meet the needs and expectations of people you may not normally be accustomed to welcoming at your programs, no matter where your program is being held. International meetings do not just describe programs that are being planned abroad but also programs back home that are seeing an increase in international attendees.  Globally attended programs are quickly becoming the norm and expecting attendees to conform to your standards may not be the best way to approach a culturally diverse audience. Uncover key issues to take into consideration when expecting international attendees at your next program. We’ll focus on creating a welcoming environment, logistical differences, as well as how to educate all key stakeholders on how to welcome their international guests.
